Certified Food Protection Manager Training and Testing Information

In December 2019, the Coconino County Unified Health Code was adopted by the Board of Supervisors to align with the Arizona Administrative Codes. This change added language that would allow the County to automatically update local codes when updates were made at the state level. In July 2020, the State of Arizona adopted the 2017 FDA Food Code, with an added addendum. As a result, Coconino County's Unified Health Code automatically updated as well. 

One of the changes outlined in the 2017 FDA Food Code is the requirement for food establishments to have a Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) onsite during operating hours. The CFPM training and certification must be attained through an accredited and approved organization. Information and links can be found on the Food Manager Training page.
